Lessons Learnt From Gareth Cliff Spectacle

A leader that tolerates or […]

Why Gareth Cliff Is A %$#&@ And Why You Are Too!

Two interesting things have happened as people have heard that I am involved in a small way in Gareth Cliff’s new venture: I have received a massive spike in messages, phone calls, and Facebook friend requests from people who previously didn’t give me the time of day.
